Tourists taking a leisurely walk along the San Francisco bay this week were likely heard exclaiming, “Great Scott!” A DeLorean themed hovercraft could be seen zipping along the water, and beach, in a scene straight out of Back to the Future…if Back to the Future was set at the beach.
Check out the video below along with some info on the vehicle itself. Read More »

While one Los Angeles gallery focuses on pop culture weapons, a New York counterpart is making that idea even bigger. The Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn has a new show opening January 18 called Gadgets and Gizmos and it’s filled with art based on some weapons, lots of vehicles, robots and accessories too, all inspired by the technology in some of your favorite movies.
While plenty of regulars are on display (Back to the Future, James Bond, Iron Man, Batman), this show has a bunch of subjects that don’t get as much love: Inspector Gadget, Short Circuit, District 9, The Rocketeer, and Flight of the Navigator. Check out a quick selection from the show below and find out how you can see it in person or buy it online. Read More »

In 2011, illustrator Wayne Dorrington hit the pop culture conscious with his Star Wars Iconoscopes.

After the jump, check out the full image and Dorrington’s description. It’s extremely cool. Read More »

Almost thirty-years since its release and Back to the Future remains as popular as ever. Whether its Blu-ray box sets, Mondo posters or fan creations, we still can’t get enough of Marty McFly, Doc Brown and that time-traveling Delorean.
On that note, today is a day to rejoice for all of those Back to the Future fans still clamoring for merchandise from the franchise. Lego has officially approved, and will produce, the above Back to the Future Delorean set created on their very-own Kickstarter-esque page, Lego Cuusoo. On that site, fans design and create Legos and once 10,000 other fans endorse it, it officially goes before the Lego review board. Thursday, Lego officially announced this set had been approved for 2013 release.

When Mondo revealed they’d be doing Back to the Future posters, it was enough to get even the casual fan excited. But that was in March. They’ve finally revealed the second poster in the series and it’s by Mark Englert, a name that’s familiar to Alien or Breaking Bad fans but a newcomer to the Mondo roster. It’s of one of the iconic scenes in the film, the first time the DeLorean jumps to 1955 but – what makes it really special – is that its glow in the dark element shows exactly that. And then the variant is even more geeky. Check out the posters after the jump. Read More »

Marty McFly hops in his Delorean, shoots up a bunch of people, maybe robs a bank and sets off down the street. The cops are on his tail. He drops his foot on the accelerator, gets up to 88 mph and jumps through time. See ya later coppers.
That’s obviously not a plot from any kind of officially licensed Back to the Future story, just a possible reality in this insane custom modification of Grand Theft Auto IV for PC. Modder SeedyROM went into the game and not only perfectly recreated the Delorean, he gave it the ability to travel back in time based on time circuits and the possession of plutonium. It’s a sight to be seen. Check out the video below. Read More »
